Countdown to Confetti: Fancy Words



Welcome to Day 3 of Reverse Confetti's new release countdown! Today we're featuring two new coordinating products: FANCY WORDS dies and FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamps.

I absolutely LOVE word dies, and being able to combine them with all sorts of stamped sentiment pieces is just perfect! For today, I've created three relatively quick cards using FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts, FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamps, and the gorgeous new PINA COLADA QUICK CARD PANELS.


For this first card, I just couldn't resist pairing up the "thanks a bunch" sentiment combo with the bunch of pineapples on one of the PINA COLADA QUICK CARD PANELS. Behind the sentiment is a layered chevron die-cut with the TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts dies. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment for some shine.



My second card features what might be my favorite of the PINA COLADA QUICK CARD PANELS -- the black and white striped background with some white brushstrokes on top. 


I added some geotags (from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set) and some wood veneer hearts to go along with the FANCY WORDS/FANCY WORD COORDINATES miss you sentiment. 


I can't wait to pop this one into the mail!



Last up is a card featuring another one of the PINA COLADA QUICK CARD PANELS (another favorite -- don't you just love all those triangles?!). 


For this design, I die-cut a black scallop-top banner using the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts dies and placed it in the top center of the Quick Card Panel. Next I added some looped metallic embroidery thread and topped it with a HELLO Confetti Cuts and a FANCY WORD COORDINATES sentiment strip. I sponged the HELLO die-cut with some turquoise ink to give it an ombre effect. I also scored two lines at the top of the black banner piece and folded them for some quick dimension.
